It's Arian Foster's job if he's able to go.
"If he can play, you play," HC Gary Kubiak said. "There won't be being careful with him. You may say this is how many times he's going to touch it, but you can't do something half-speed out there. We'd have to see, but if he's ready to go, he puts us at our best, and he'll be out there."
Suddenly blessed with at least a few capable options at running back, the Texans welcomed back the NFL's reigning rushing champion. According to a few of his teammates, Foster, who said Wednesday he "felt good," looked as fine as ever.
Then again, that's what he said at various points last week - before he missed the season-opening 34-7 rout of Indianapolis. But Wednesday was different. Foster ran with the first team, participating throughout the practice - which wasn't the case last week.
No decision has been made on whether he plays Sunday at Miami.
